Challenges parents at Tavua schools prefects induction

 

Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts Mahendra Reddy has encouraged parents to take more initiative in their children’s education.

He said this while officiating as chief guest at the joint Tavua District Primary School and Tavua District Secondary School prefect induction on Thursday.

“We are the first teachers at home,” Mr Reddy told the parents at the Tavualevu Methodist Church at Tavua Village.

“Look after them and teach them to be great leaders. Spend more time with them. Great leaders help to build a community. If we, as parents go wrong now, we can lose this generation,” he said.

It was the first time for the schools to hold their prefect induction together.

Mr Reddy inducted 86 prefects.

 

There are 207 students in Tavua District Secondary School and 410 in the Tavua District Primary School.
